It´s been a minute. It´s actually been several minutes since I was last active on WordPress. To tell you the truth – I needed a break from book blogging.
The time came when I needed to take a step back and reflect on this whole book blogging shizz.
Once every blue moon I feel the need to put some distance between me and my hobby. Because it´s not always easy. It´s not always fun. No matter how much I love what I do I´m still not immune to the pressure that comes with book blogging.
Reading became a chore again and writing blog posts started to feel wrong.
Believe it or not- It´s possible to be in a reading slump and end up slipping into a book blogger funk. It´s a thing and for me, and I saw this as a sign to distance myself from the book community.
What happened was: I hadn´t allowed myself any reading breaks in between reads. I read and read and by the end of each week I wasn´t able to remember half the stories I read only days before.
And at the same time, I was dealing with an unhealthy amount of negativity aimed towards my blog content.
Sure, I could have sent a collective ” fuck off” to all the hate and then called it a day. I could have worked on my reading pace. Could have. Should have.
Instead, I let everything get to me. I began thinking of ways on how to not offend people with my non-offensive blog posts. Ridiculous, right? I agree.
Now, after a few weeks away from the internet, I feel rejuvenated. I am ready to start again with a clear mind. And with my new found energy I rediscovered my love for reading ( and blogging ).
Okay, it´s time to get that drink that´s been calling my name and continue reading that one book I started earlier today.
Be prepared for an onslaught of blog posts and comments on your own blog. ❤
I wish each and every one of you a wonderful Sunday. Feel hugged.
Don´t forget to share the book love!
